There is a rarely used loop around a block of houses at Stiglmaierplatz near the Hauptbahnhof in Munich. In 2012 tram line 27 was interrupted for one week in case of track constructions at Karlsplatz, so the trams ran via Karlsplatz Nord and Hauptbahnhof Nord to Stiglmaierplatz. This video shows the interesting operation around the loop:

Munich to order longer trams
Thursday, May 15, 2014



MUNICH Transport (MVG) has issued an international invitation to prequalify for a contract to supply 13 new low-floor LRVs as part of a project to increase capacity on the busiest sections of the city's tram network.

The order will comprise four 34m-long and nine 48m-long LRVs, which will be 14m longer than the longest vehicles currently in use on the MVG network. The 48m-long vehicles will replace 34m-long trams on the Main Station – Westfriedhof (Lines 20/21), and Main Station – Romanplatz (Line 16 and 17) routes, increasing capacity from 220 to 270 passengers per set.

The new 34m-long LRVs and the 34m-long vehicles displaced from Lines 20 and 21 will be allocated to Line 16 from St Emmeram to Max-Weber-Platz, where they will increase capacity and allow the withdrawal of 13 27m-long trams currently in use on this route.

MVG says that it expects to order the vehicles before the end of the year with delivery scheduled for late 2017 onwards.

The contract will include options for additional vehicles to support the expansion of the network and replace trams dating from the 1990s, which are due to be phased out from 2023 onwards

Will it then be possible to continue U9 to fröttmanning during matches at the Allianz Arena?

In my post #152 you'll find some maps about the project. The new U9 is planned to run from Martinsried to Garching-Forschungszentrum across the new tunnel between Implerstraße and Münchner Freiheit via Hauptbahnhof. The U6 will operate between Klinikum Großhadern and Fröttmaning but will use the shared tunnel of U3/U6 via Sendlinger Tor. Both lines (U6 and U9) will serve Fröttmaning and the Allianz Arena.

There is also a first feasibility study with some very interesting details and maps: http://www.ba-muenchen.info/mvg/MVG-...9_20140211.pdf

In 2013 passenger rides of underground, tram and bus increased by 1,5% to 544 million passengers per year!

Munich's underground stations are well known because of its great architecture.

Was in Munich yesterday. Took some videos and pictures of the transport there. One thing I can say - it is the most pleasant network I have been on in Europe thus far.

Precisely my thought after visiting Munich. It's a pleasure to use.

I saw it when I was there. It looks amazing. In a week or so I'll upload a video of my little walk through of Munich Hbf. The whole network looks great there, I'm very jealous!
